The Happiness Machine is a little Internet-enabled printer that spits out random happy thoughts it finds online everytime the big black button is pressed.
Though The Happiness Machine uses content from We Feel Fine, the printer is completely agnostic to the data it prints; the logic is all done on the server so I can easily change what type of data comes back. It could easily be train times, news headlines or your day's appointments -- the printer doesn't care -- it's dumb. It just prints what comes back.
I still believe paper has advantages from time to time as a content delivery mechanism over all the screens that now pervade our lives; you can tear it off, put it in your wallet/purse, scribble on it or give it someone else without worrying whether it works with their OS. And it doesn't need a power source for display.
